Homemade goods including handicrafts wait for buyers
Apr '09
Lack of marketing opportunities made the homemade goods producers in Baglung to have huge inventories of goods produced by them as they bound to store their unsold products. Products like handicrafts, cloths and paper are not receiving buyers.

The goods producers are suffering from huge losses due to such type of situation. One of the Dhaka cap weavers said that she brings yarn from outside and faces big losses when she can't get buyers for her products.

There are a large number of women entrepreneurs and cottage industries here have been making various goods at home, such as cloths, bags, Dhaka caps, shawls, musical instruments, handicraft and spices but the local administration does not support their business.

These local entrepreneurs have been receiving support from the Small and Cottage Industry Development Committee in Banglung. This committee has been providing training and technical assistance to these entrepreneurs; still the products made by these local entrepreneurs are lacking in market strength.

Government sources say that some effective measures had been taken to expand and find new market for these products as well as tried to explore export potential for these products. They say they had also organized a two-day fair for the promotion of these local enterprises and cottage industries, but did not meet with success.
